  • Pep Guardiola hints injured Sergio Aguero may not make the World Cup

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

City's Champions League conqueror moved ever closer to sealing its place in the competition next season as Liverpool cruised past Bournemouth with Salah again taking centrestage. Upon the final whistle the first person he made contact with was Kevin de Bruyne. David SilvaMANCHESTER, ENGLAND - DECEMBER 03: David Silva of Manchester City celebrates scoring his sides second goal while Pablo Zabaleta of West Ham United looks dejected during the Premier League match between Manchester City and West Ham United at Etihad Stadium on December 3, 2017 in Manchester, England.

Guardiola's team has lost only two league games this season and if they win their remaining five games would end the campaign with 102 points.

A week after preventing its neighbors from clinching the title in front of their own fans by rallying from 2-0 down to win 3-2, United delivered a similarly unlikely result as managerless West Brom pulled off one of the shocks of the season.

Vinny sounds determined to buck the trend of champions underachieving the year after, something City have had happen to them twice, and wants the Blues to be ready for another assault on the title next season.

Their squad is crammed full of wonderfully potent performers such as Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, yet the Premier League table, which shows them 16 points behind City, does not lie.

"It is the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it", Kompany said.

Speaking after the win over Tottenham, Guardiola admitted winning the title in England would be one of the greatest achievements of his glittering career. It can set top marks for most goals (103, 2009-10 Chelsea) and most wins (30, 2016-17 Chelsea). "I think winning in Stamford Bridge gave us the confidence that we can do that".

"The way we played helped us reach our target".

They still have a seven-point buffer over Chelsea in the race for the Champions League and boss Mauricio Pochettino is content. "The Premier League is the constant - every day, every day, every day - and we were there every day".

It was a far cry from his trophy-less first season with City and Kompany said Guardiola's tenacious attitude led them to the summit.
